Agnès Varda in the Atelier

Episode 1 of “Agnès de ci de là Varda” on arte.tv gives viewers a rare glimpse into Chris Marker’s atelier, replete with audio-visual & computer equipment, books, clippings, cats & owls, totemic miscellanea, and a bit of the voice-off of Marker himself. Here is an endless sprawl of creation out of the personal archive, the living space of the magnetic bible continuously remembering itself. Here the traces of travel, of nomadic photo- and cinematography—come to some sort of slow-spiraling gravitational orbit in the artist’s loft, a kind of ground zero of the mnemonic.

hi,

thanks for the itunes link ! And thanks for all the posts on this blog, it’s really nice to see such writing and informations about Cinema, Avant garde and Chris Marker, which is in my opinion a too much unknown artist of our century.
